This is Archibald Fountain in Sydney’s Hyde Park, and behind it, St Mary’s Cathedral. I wrote about these classic landmarks in my novel, Love Lie Repeat. I snapped the picture last night, on the way to visit a friend.
Yes, my book is my love song to Sydney…and it hits the shops tomorrow!
If you have any desire to write — if you do write — can you imagine how this feels? I’m proud and tired and happy. It feels a bit like leaving a five year old at the door of a kindergarten classroom.
(You hope that people will be nice.)
I’m a beginner and I started at 50. You guys, it’s been amazing and scary and wonderful all at once. Reviewers are loving my book and posting gorgeous photos like this one.
celebrate with us on 23 March!
I’m getting super excited about my launch party in the city on the 23 March. We’re getting close to capacity at our very cool venue in the city, so if you want to party with us (Penguin Books, my family, me!) please email me or Libby at Beachside Bookshop.
Overseas people — we’re going to Live Stream the launch so you can ALL party with the Aussies! And you can watch the replay, too. (Details coming soon — but it’s easy.)
Everyone is invited.
Everyone’s still sleeping in my Sunday-morning-house, so I’m off to make another cup of coffee and enjoy the birds and autumn sun.
I hope you all have a beautiful Sunday!
Thank you for being here with me, in real life, or in this corner of the internet. I appreciate you more than you know.
Love Catherine x

Melbourne author Louisa Deasey wrote about authors and money. So interesting if you’ve always wondered how the book industry works.
